Reverse stamping with OPI Mustangs and Born Pretty Plates

Hey guys! Today I have another mani I did forever ago (it seems, really only about a week and a half). Things get super busy here from time to time and blogging gets tossed in the back seat! I'm still trying to get stuff put away in our new place (NOT including the crap that gets thrown in closets to sort "later") and getting ready for some company coming in a couple weeks! ACK! This post has actually taken me 3 "computer sessions" to write because I keep having other computery stuff to do :)

Anyway, the mood struck me when I unpacked my stamping stuff....which consists of 2 plates and a stamper :) Only one of the plates am I able to get consistent images off of, its BP13 sent to me from Born Pretty Store a while back. Stamping with a single color on a single background kind of bores me, so this is my preferred method, even though its super hard and time consuming! I think it's called "reverse" stamping.

I was super happy with the way this came out! Its a good thing to, because later that day I totally smashed my thumb with a hammer. RIP left thumbnail, you've had a good run :( I couldn't even take this off when it NEEDED to come off because my thumb hurt so bad.

Here's the color palate for this mani. Do you guys like seeing bottle shots like this? I can label them too in the future, if I think of it. Sometimes you can't see all the colors when you only use a little of one color.

I used all OPI:
shimmery blue: The Sky's the Limit
glitter: (I chose the color pallet from the colors in this glitter)
pink: Girls Love Ponies
white: Alpine Snow
teal: Taylor Blue
purple: Funky Dunky

I didn't take pics of the process or film. I'm not even trying to imply I'm good enough at this to make a tutorial OR keep stopping to take pics! I did snap this one though, after I got done filling in the spaces. I used OPI Black Onyx to pick up the image in black and fill in from there. When I was done I bushed on a good layer of Seche Vite and when that was dry I peeled if off and applied it to my nail (over a white base) like a decal.

I also used 4 (of 6) untried (well, a couple are tried but un-blogged) polishes! yay!
